What is Women’s and Gender Studies?Women’s and Gender Studies examines the contributions, perspectives, experiences, roles, and status of individuals within an historical and multicultural framework. Challenging stereotypes, our students explore the ways gender, socioeconomic class, sexual identity, race, ethnicity and age shape experience. Students are encouraged to explore female behavior and the realities of women’s lives, and to examine how femininity and masculinity are socially and culturally molded rather than determined by biology alone.
